Are your farm animals showing symptoms of heat stress? Poultry, as well as pigs and ruminants can be seriously affected by extreme temperatures and need further support against the consequences of heat stress to prevent economic loss, decreased productivity and health problems.
Heat stress mitigation strategies
The following factors play an important role in mitigating heat stress:
- Environmental adjustments to comfort the animals
- Housing modifications and management
- Continuous access to fresh and cold water
- Access to shade
- Withdrawal of animals from direct sunlight and placement in a cool area
- Fluid, electrolyte and vitamin C therapy
Nutritional strategies are imperative and can help in synergy with environmental control to successfully prevent the incidence or combat the consequences of heat stress. This usually involves optimizing the diet to meet the altered needs of stressed animals.
